POLKADOT ONE PIECE: ASOS | PINK FLORAL ONE PIECE: ALBION FIT | BLACK MESH ONE PIECE: ALBION FIT | BLACK STRAW HAT: BRIXTON | STRAW BAG: KAYU DESIGN

I'm no expert when it comes to maternity fashion, but I do feel like I have hit the jackpot with a couple of maternity swimsuits. I was always told that being pregnant in the Summer would be so hard due to the heat and humidity, but I am actually finding it enjoyable thanks to beach days and flowy dresses.

These have been a few of my favorite swimsuits during pregnancy, and you might be shocked to learn that none of them are actaully maternity suits. The key for me has been to find ones that are stretchy (to accommodate the growing belly), but that also flatter your body. I love off-the-shoulder suits because they show off my neckline and collar bone. It sounds kind-of funny, but this just works for me. Of course, I had to also include an all black swimsuit. Black is universally flattering all the time but especially during preganancy.

I have been loving Albion Fit (you guys have seen me talk about them before) for splurge-worth, high quality suits. They come in some adorable patterns and styles and have such incredible fit. I sized up to a Medium from my normal small, but I probably could have even done a large for the growing belly. GET 15% OFF YOUR ALBION FIT PURCHASE WITH CODE MOLLY15.

ASOS has been my go-to for affordable swimsuits. The polkadot suit was one I bought towards the beginning of my pregnancy and has been a tried and true favorite throughout. They have SO many great options and even have super cute actual maternity swimsuits. I recently bought this $35 striped one and am in love.

STRIPED MAXI DRESS: PINK BLUSH (C/O) | BLUSH WEDGES: MARC FISHER (C/O) | STRAW BAG: KAYU DESIGN (C/O) | BLACK HAT: BRIXTON WOMENS

I have been waiting for the bump to make an appearance, and it has finally decided to arrive. Small, but we are getting there! Since none of my regular clothes fit, I have been trying to be creative with what I wear. I obviously always want to look cute, but comfort has become my new must-have. Flowy maxi dresses like this one from Pink Blush are PERFECT for this time of year. They are breezy, comfortable and so easy to dress up or down.

Pink Blush has been my go-to for cute and affordable maternity clothes. They have a HUGE selection of clothing and even offer super cute maternity swimsuits. I love that they don't feel TOO maternity but still fit my style. They also offer super cute outfits for girls who aren't pregnant as well.

Happy Tuesday, friends! I am SO excited to finally share the details from our Fiesta-themed gender reveal party. I knew I wanted to go all out with this first baby and do all the fun things that come with pregnancy (gender reveal party included). We had the BEST time celebrating with our closest family and friends (minus a few....cough cough MacKenzie and Chase) and couldn't be more thrilled about having a little GIRL. It still feels surreal to say that, and I honestly don't even know if it has sunk in yet. Get ready for all the little girl outfit inspiration because you know she will be styling!

We went with a fiesta theme because I wanted to do something a little different for our actual reveal, and I thought busting open a piñata would be super cute. We ended up filling this adorable cactus piñata that I got on Etsy with a couple bags of pink confetti.

For the decor, we worked with WittyBash and PaperFoxLA. WittyBash provided the amazing paper goods and a the colorful fan garland. I LOVED that we were able to incorporate the adorable cacti plates and napkins, and I think they really made the table scape. WittyBash has the most amazing selection of party supplies and is a one-stop shop for any of your needs when it comes to celebrations. I cannot wait to use her for future birthday parties for our little GIRL. The tassel garland was from PaperFoxLA and was the perfect colorful addition. We put one underneath the food set-up and another near the drink station and both ended up looking so cute. My incredibly talented and crafty sister-in-law, Sarah, designed and made the adorable floral hula hoop. Isn't it the coolest thing ever? I'm trying to convince her to custom-make them for people, so let me know if you would be interested.

My rockstar mom and MIL helped with all of the food. We started the evening with some delicious finger foods (I made these and they were a hit) and had a taco bar for dinner. It was SO yummy and relatively cheap to feed a bunch of people. For dessert, my friend Kayla from Sweet Freedom Cakes, baked us the most delicious cake I have ever tasted. My husband, who doesn't even really like cake, had three pieces. Kayla is amazing and does beautiful cakes for any occasion. I recommend the cinnamon bun flavor with the cream cheese frosting (to die for).

It was the best night to celebrate our sweet little girl! We are counting down the days until September.
